The “One Health” concept recognizes that the health of the environment influences the health of people and all animals–wildlife as well as pets, horses, and farm animals. One Health is of great interest to medical doctors, public health officials, veterinarians, wildlife biologists, marine scientists, agricultural producers–anyone, in fact, who is concerned with healthy life on a healthy planet.
Veterinary medicine is critical to the important global undertaking One Health represents. Learn what the concept means to you and your family while gaining an insider’s view into one of the nation’s top-ranked veterinary programs as the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine invites you behind the scenes for the Open House festival from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 28.
